(Press Release) The Contemporary Jewelry Design Group has announced the inaugural Cindy Edelstein Memorial Charity Auction to take place on June 3 at the COUTURE Show in Las Vegas.

The nonprofit CJDG in cooperation with the COUTURE Show will conduct an online auction of jewelry donated by CJDG members. Proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Jewelers For Children charity and to the Cindy Edelstein fund of the Women’s Jewelry Association.

The auction has the consent and support of Cindy Edelstein’s family and friends. For many years, Edelstein ran a similar auction in Las Vegas; this auction is a tribute to her and a way for CJDG to give back to the jewelry community.

Details of the online auction site and donated pieces will be forthcoming. The dollar amount raised will be announced at the June 3 event.

Formed in 1989, the CJDG is a national organization dedicated to the promotion of creative jewelry design.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
